Let a good guy for a change to try something in the entertainment industry.
At least many MANY more people would be happy to see Ian on TV than this Romber's train wreck!

I wish I could call myself a Reality Fame Whore.
Actually I wish I could be called the first double winner of Survivor and Amazing Race.

Ian is all over the place in that interview. I don't think he knows who he is yet.
He starts off by saying:
Then ends with
I'm still trying to decide if it was the right decision or not.
So he's unsure if his proudest moment was the right decision? Okay then.
TVG: Lastly, what was your best moment on the island?
Ian: Stepping off that platform.
Then he twists it with:
So now it's not about right and wrong, but rather what you can get away with.
But some of us are better at it than others, and I just ended up not being a very good liar. I think I am the worst liar in Survivor history. I am so bad at it.
Does this guy have a mind of his own? I just think he's kind of full of it and says what he thinks the other person wants to hear. Well, whatever, I'm sure he'll land on his feet. He's a good looking, likeable, natural leader. I totally see politics in his future.
Oh and barf:
I didn't want the million ashamed.
See and I call bullcrap on this because again he was not ashamed at the time of the decision. He was ashamed when he was found out.
I became so close to Tom and Katie and the rest of Koror and that ended up weighing on the game more than I thought it would. When the decision actually comes to stab somebody in the back, it makes it a little more difficult.

Why does Ian think that Ian should be held to a higher standard than
Kate or Tom? Why does Ian think he should be penalized for "lying" when
Kate and Tom both do the same thing, albeit in different manners?
What type of "friendship" does Ian seek with Tom and Kate after this
game is over? He's going to get Christmas cards from them for several
years. Was this really worth $1,000,000?
I think this was a brainwashing, a Stockholm syndrome. Ian's ego simply
could not take the pressure of 2 others competing for the same real estate.
His ego submitted, gave the other egoes what they wanted, hoping to
win their approval. In this zero-sum game that they've played, he is a
born loser; for whatever reason, he does not value himself enough to
consider himself capable of winning.
I was a fan of Ian for the longest time, but this cave-in, this bankruptcy,
this collapse of personality is all the more bizarre in that he is completely
ignorant of what he's done. In the post-game wrapups and interviews,
he says he's glad he's 'done the right thing,' etc. He started the game
knowing what it was (a competition for a large amount of money), and
withdrew from it with the idea that it was a competition for Tom's approval.
How very sad.
